Prayer for Hope–Praying for Others

When we feel helpless, praying for others can actually help us. Helping others has been shown in studies to improve our own mental health. The same can be said for our prayer lives.

Rita Buettner, a writer for Catholic Review, writes that praying for others “helps us feel connected to people and places and issues beyond ourselves. It broadens our perspective on the difficulties that others face. It broadens our horizons. It assists us in growing in gratitude and hope.”

We get closer to others when we pray for them. That communion with others, as well as with God, inspires hope. So, if you’re feeling down, try praying for others.

King David said that he found his courage and power in the living God. Psalm 18 verse 1 tells us “I love you, God— you make me strong. God is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight”. Additionally, St. Paul claims that “when I am weak, then I am strong” in his letter to the Corinthian church.

Each of us has struggles and circumstances that can feel overwhelming. We can ask the Lord to fill us with His sustaining force in these areas of our lives.
